As you may be aware a member of Haslington Parish Council resigned last month which has created a vacancy for a parish councillor to cover the Winterley Ward. Cheshire East Council have now received requests from the requisite number of registered electors for an election to be called and they will shortly forward Haslington Parish Council a copy of the Notice of Election which will be displayed from 24 May.
The deadline for Cheshire East to receive completed nomination papers will be 4pm on 2 June 2017.
If contested, the election will take place on Thursday 29 June 2017, the costs of which will be charged to Haslington Parish Council.
Please be aware that as the vacancy is for a Winterley Ward councillor, it is only residents from the Winterley Ward that will be allowed to vote rather than the whole of the Haslington Parish.
